I fled my harsh mistress Fedora! It's not a platform to try and do devel
work on, or as a server. I need the quiet sedate life where things work
today like they did yesterday. <grins> I'll certainly live longer. No
clue how, why or who, but Xvfb refused to work with F7 and with CentOS
it works like a charm, out of the box, with java.net's Wonderland
program. No clue why, but if it breaks in the future, I'll know where
upstream it came from. <cackles> Ric
